Mild Start - With the upper ridge in our area and a dry airmass, we start out the day pretty mild with highs in the mid 60s for the DFW area. Currently, our high temperature today is forecast to be 92. If the forecast is right, that would be first time a temperature 90 or above has been recorded in the month of November. The current record was set in November 2, 2012 with a high of 87 degrees. Expect today to feel more like a summer day.
Additionally, due to elevated temperatures and southwest winds at 10-15 mph (gusting to 25mph), elevated to critical fire weather will be possible behind the dryline. Be sure to check if your county is under a burn ban for today.
Tomorrow - We trend ever so slightly cooler with highs sticking around in the mid 80s. Winds will calm to 5 to 10 mph, which will reduce any fire danger issues for Friday.
Football Weather - For tomorrow night's high school football games, most of the games will be played under a clear sky with temperatures falling from the mid 80s at kickoff to near the upper 70s by the final whistle.
Summit High School takes on Legacy High School at Newsom Stadium tomorrow night (kickoff @ 7:30p). For now, the game will be played under a clear sky as the sun fades away, with the temperature falling from 85 at kickoff to 82 by the end of the fourth quarter.
The Weekend - Not much change. We continue to stay dry, free of any widespread clouds. Highs still stick around in the mid 80s.
Next Week - We stay the same for the early part of next week, then a cold front comes through by Tuesday evening which will drop highs to the upper 60s - fall-like weather returns. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
Tropics - The Atlantic Basin is quiet, and no new tropical storms is expected for the next five days.
